It’s summer time – time to dress up your outdoor table! I found this chevron outdoor fabric last month when I was in Ohio – it’s so awesome. The fabric is fade proof for up to 500 hours. Awesome! Let’s sew up these chevron outdoor placemats.
What You Need
- 1 yard of front fabric
- 1 yard of back fabric
- matching thread
First – decide on the size of your square. Mine are 14 inches by 14 inches. You can go as low as 12×12 or as high as 16×16. It’ll depend on your pacesetting and your table.
Next – cut out your pre-washed fabric. Put right sides together and serge or stitch all around, leaving a hole to turn right sides out.
Now, once they are right side out, iron and fold in the opening. Top stitch all around. On these, I wanted to see the stitching, so I used a think grey tread on top and then my bobbin had a heavy duty white thread, so you could see it on the black. They are reversible if you’re not in the mood for chevron.
Then, iron your seam and you’re done!
Happy sewing – check back soon for the fun picnic napkins to match!
